Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India has accepted and initiated the proposal submitted by Dholera Industrial City Development Limited (DICDL) for setting up an ESIC hospital, as Dholera Special Investment Region (DSIR) has already identified a land parcel for a 200-bed hospital in the activation area. As of now, 22.54 sq km is being developed in phase 1 of the Activation area out of 920 sq km. It will impact the development at the DSIR, since Dholera is experiencing immigration in the form of skilled and unskilled labourers for the ongoing construction activities in and around the activation area.
Dholera SIR, which caters to more than 4500 labourers and a request to the Ministry of Labour and Employment, was made for setting up a hospital to deliver high-quality healthcare for its workers.
Hareet Shukla, MD, DICDL, said, "We are pleased to announce that the Ministry has approved our request and dialogue has been initiated with the officials from State ESIC for setting up an ESI Hospital Dholera SIR. This would greatly benefit the workers and, in turn, will be a great push for the region's development. The healthcare facility will serve not only the existing employees and workers but also the futuristic development due to existing and proposed connectivity projects."
